We've gotten used to taking music for granted. At least back in the day you had to run to the store and unwrap a jewel case that felt like it was packaged to survive a rocket launch to Andromeda before you were forced to peruse a booklet full of self-congratulatory liner notes about "how much work we've put into this album" and the hairdressers and tour managers they "couldn't have done it without." In the click-to-listen era, A Fat Wreck is a reminder of the hard work, disappointment and risk it takes to run a small record label that would eventually have its logo stamped on the back of albums across America. NOFX lead singer Fat Mike and his then-girlfriend Erin Burkett founded Fat Wreck Chords, a place where they could independently sign and nurture like-minded people, in 1990. Now, after a distribution deal with a Sony imprint and Rise Against albums to their name, Fat Wreck Chords – who to this day boast about not being affiliated with the RIAA – seek to make their mark in the arena of puppet-driven rockumentaries. Yeah, we don't know either. Our guess is you'll just have to watch it and tell us.
